Company Spotlight – Unity Stamp Co.!!!

This week’s featured company – Unity Stamp Co.!!!

Unity Stamp Co. first orders were shipped in May of this year. They have come a long way in a short time. Owners Angela and Chris Magnuson have done an awesome job of launching this new company. I had the pleasure of meeting the Unity girls at in Chicago at CHA in July. Picture a group of super models in brown polka dot tops and tiaras… I wanted to hate them, but they were just too darn cute.

In the past month I’ve had the chance to get to know the girls at their Company Forum on Splitcoast. They are as just as nice and funny as they are beautiful. Thursday’s are Hip Hop Day in the Unity Forum with a Design Team Blog Hop and all kinds of chatter, challenges and prizes.

Unity Stamp Co. offers a unique variety of images, everything from cute little penguins to beautiful large stand alone phrases. I would describe Unity images as stylish, funky and just plain fun to play with. The images are perfect for both cardmakers and scrapbookers. Unity has several illustrators, and each one lets their unique styles shine through.

The Unity artists:

Unity Stamp Co. images are deeply etched red rubber that is sold both pre-mounted on EZ Mount cling for use on clear blocks and wood mounted on their special extra thin blocks that can be used with their very nifty and innovative handle system that can be used with their thin wood mounted or unmounted images. A video can be found HERE about the handle system. Unity stamps are sold in Stamp Kits (sets) and as Singles. HERE is a link to how Unity stamps are sold and packaged. There is also a Kit of the Month program where you can get a fun sampling of exclusive Unity stamps sent directly to your home each month. *********************************************************

My first card was made using images from the Have a Diva Day and Diva-Lish sets. I stamped the phrase directly onto the pattern paper ( Black Market – Lucky in Love). I used a Black and Taken With Teal markers to ink up the letters. I nipped the corners of the images using a Ticket Corner punch and then sponged Walnut Stain Ranger Distress ink around all the edges. The crown was stamped with VersaMark ink and the heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.

For my next sample I sponged Cool Caribbean and Pacific Point ink onto watercolor paper (I used watercolor paper because I like the texture). I then took the border Stamp from Together Forever and stamped randomly onto the panel with Pacific Point ink. On some of the areas I stamped without reinking to get a lighter shade. After all the ink was dry I stamped the Believe sentiment in White pigment ink and heat embossed with White Embossing powder. I stiched around the image panel with the sewing machine. White Opal Liquid Pearls was added to the flowers.

The background was created by taking the flower image from Together Forever and first inking it in Cool Caribbean and then sponging some Pacific Point ink on the edges of the stamp.

I will be picking three random winners (each person will get one of the prizes) on Wednesday September 17th at 9am CT from everyone who leaves a comment on this post.

Good luck!!!
